Citizen Four

Postby PMC » Mon Feb 23, 2015 11:59 pm

Michael Geist has a nice piece on democracy in Canada... the movie Citizen Four and the behaviours of fascism.

http://www.michaelgeist.ca/2015/02/citi ... ace-story/

There is a link to the movie site but I can't get to it from here... the browser keeps saying the page download is interrupted... perhaps censored is a better term etc. Others perhaps can try it themselves to see if it only occurs here.

I've viewed Laura Poitros' gripping documentary guaranteed to give you nightmares. It was available through "The Intercept" also Wikileaks for a short while but I think that link got taken down.

Brian Williams did an hour long piece of an interview with Ed Snowden, and several times during the show, it was stated that the full interview could be seen at the NBC website... the video may have been there, but I could not watch it from here. Access to It was filtered, similar to the movie website. The `freedom of the internet' seems to be changing and the consumer will vote on its future.

This morning there was a live interview done with Ed Snowden. I missed it because of the time zone difference, however all can catch up on here

http://cjfe.org/asksnowden

This link is to a database of documentation about Snowden that is created for the Canadian perspective.

And one more, if the above gets censored.

The ACLU, Wikimedia and several others are suing the NSA for their fascist behaviours.

Now if someone would sue Harper, CSIS and CSEC for the same... and return democracy to Canada.

Over the years there have been statements by "dooms-day preachers" about invasion and take over of North America by fascist or communist governments - and the laws and agencies would be in place to facilitate a take over. ( CSIS, CSEC, Homeland Security ) - In the 60s and 70s the idea of such a thing happening seemed far fetched...but lately with how our governments are acting, in the name of protecting our rights the possibility is not such remote an idea.

In fact the whole "take over" could be a "home grown" affair - subtle changes to a law here and there .... "crime fighting" "immigration" legislation... It wouldn't take much - it could happen. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Many things about C-51 today. There is a website and many protesting in the name of democracy.

A lawyer with a blog points out the C-51 detail of how the new rules can stop you from speaking and providing answers of your involvement. It is pure fascist legislation.

This is a piece that should be read by all, and shared...
